Serial killer Andrew Cunanan killed Gianni Versace on front steps of the fashion designer’s Miami Beach mansion in 1997, and those stone steps offer the background for heaps of tourist photographs on a daily basis.
However, not only can tourists (and fans of FX’s forthcoming American Crime Story miniseries, that concentrates on the murder) picture the home, they could remain there overnight. Scroll down to get a peek in the luxury boutique resort known as the Villa Casa Casuarina.
THE THREE-STORY BUILDING WAS ORIGINALLY BUILT AS AN APARTMENT COMPLEX BY MAYFLOWER DESCENDANT AND STANDARD OIL HEIR ALDEN FREEMAN IN 1930
